Other Curry Continues To Impress

Liberty guard Seth Curry, the little brother of Davidson all-American Stephen, continues to wow the Big South Conference. Seth was named the league's player of the week today after helping the Flames to two victories.

Curry scored 15 points in a win over Coastal Carolina, then reached his career high with 35 as Liberty knocked off first-place VMI. His stats are remarkably similar to Stephen's, in that he's an excellent shooter (15-of-28 for the week) from the floor and the foul line (16-of-17), and contributes in other areas as well. He had nine rebounds and five steals in his week's work.

UNC-Asheville had the Freshman of the Week in Matt Dickey, who averaged 19 points as the Bulldogs split two games.--Stan Olson
